I made two pillow cases for the throw pillows in our living room.  The red matches our accent walls, and the blue is a little lighter than the other walls, but the closest I could find.  Anyway, I used an envelope backing for the pillows, but the first one didn't quite fit, so the envelope is spread open a bit.  Then I sewed the back of the second pillow on backwards!  But hey, as long as nobody flips them over they look just fine!

Very pretty and classic. And what's more important, your very pretty kitty approves!

Cute.  It kinda looks retro-swedish.  I really like it.

Thanks!  My cat is pretty easy to please!  Smiley
I modified a pattern that I had seen in a book for the front of the pillow.  I love patterns like that.

Hey, they look a lot neater than what I would sew! I think you did a great job and I love the colors.
